Hives are independent groups of people who care about LBRY values: freedom to make our own choices in the content we consume and publish, software that respects its users, and tools that leave those who use them in control.
A Hive is made up of people who care about LBRY and… something else. That “something else” could be based on many different ideas. Some good examples: a geographical area, a genre of music, a hobby or interest, or a project being built on the LBRY protocol.
